Welcome to the new layout

Needed some change. Made some out here. Let me know how you find the new layout of my blog.

I love love

I love being in love. When everything around seems to go wrong, love stays by your side to show that you are loved. Thanks love, thanks Mrinal.

Catching up

Look back at the pages of your life and you will come across many people who were your good friends / colleagues at a point of time and today they are just a number on your mobile's contact list. Or perhaps they exist 0n your Facebook and Orkut accounts as well. Sometimes you feel you should catch up with them, meet them at once, but the thought passes as soon as it arrives.

So when I met Amit online last week, we just decided to meet up. And we actually did meet today! I still can't believe we went on talking for 3 hours and didn't realise the time. Of course, I know you'd think that I can go on, but trust me it was a two-way conversation ;) It felt so good to know so much about so many things, learn from each other's experience and remember those days at work together. And I hope the little bit of match fixing I did for him (you should have seen him blushing a bit) might turn out to be great.

Now, I plan to meet up with all those people I have been planning to catch up with since long. Who's next?

What's with the medical problems?

Many people in my close circle are undergoing treatment for various reasons. Cancer, TB, osteoporosis, injury due to fall. And then I am doing my own never ending rounds to the clinic. All this at the same time! Did someone predict that this year will be dedicated to doctors and medical bills? The funniest thing is that none of the ailments me or my dear ones are suffering from have to do much with prevention, hygience, basic health precautions, etc. Strange.

And if I try to be positive in this scenario, there's one good thing I can't deny. For obvious and nice reasons, people come closer and relations become stronger at such times. You tend to call up people and ask about their health and progress, and in the process you catch up after a long long time. You also realise who are the people you can't count on or who don't actually care. Perhaps, it's time to shed the hypocrites in your circle and build on more meaningful relationships. And it's time to thank the friends who care.
